Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Sannie Darra has disclosed that both local and expatriate coaches have applied for the Black Stars coaching job.

The Football Association and outgoing Black Stars coach, Avram Grant will part ways officially on February 28 after the Israeli failed to win the just ended Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Many have called on the FA to appoint a local coach since expatriate coaches have failed to win a major trophy for the country.

The Black Stars hopes of making it to four straight successive World Cup appearance in Russia 2018 is in doubt after recording just a point after two matches played.

The former BBC journalist further disclosed that the FA have received applications from both local and expatriate coaches.  

“The Executive Committee will meet to decide on the appointment on the next Black Stars coach…we don’t care appointing a local or expatriate coach because when we are getting the results, they will not ask if the coach is a local coach or expatriate coach,” he said on Asempa FM.

“Both local and expatriates coaches have applied for the Black Stars coaching job but we want to choose a competent coach because we have leant our lessons from the appointment of Avram Grant.” He added.
